In Memoriam: Noel Sheppard


Media critic and blogger extraordinaire Noel Sheppard lost his brief battle to cancer on March 28.

My friend was only 53.

An irrepressible, energetic blogger, Noel set the standard for media criticism at NewsBusters.

In short, he took no prisoners in his daily battles with left-wing journalists.

Sheppard was a one-time Capital Research Center contributor and he was cited in our work many times over the years.  Sheppard co-authored “Inside the Disinformation Machine:  A Look at the Left’s New Media Operation,” which appeared in the September 2008 issue of Foundation Watch.

Other tributes to Noel:  Thomas Lifson at American Thinker; Matt Sheffield at NewsBusters; Brent Bozell at NewsBusters; and Debra Heine at Breitbart News.
